THE STORY:

Several years ago, I set a personal goal to run the Boston Marathon, having annually attended and watched the race growing up. I began to focus and train competitively, and a few months ago finally qualified, so I’m pleased to report that I’ll be joining the field in Boston on April 17th.

Since deciding to run Boston, I also wanted to raise funds for a cause that I cared about. Last summer, I read “Being Mortal” by Atul Gawande, and was intrigued by his insights around end-of-life care focusing on compassionate communication between clinicians and seriously ill patients. Having faced a difficult end-of-life situation with my grandmother who recently passed away, I am inspired by Dr. Gawande’s efforts to help medical professionals learn what matters most to patients and their families, and to help them achieve those goals.

To support his public health research, Dr. Gawande, who is also a surgeon at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, founded Ariadne Labs in 2012 as a research center for health systems innovation focused on transforming how medicine is delivered around the globe. Ariadne creates simple, scalable tools, such as the Safe Surgery Checklist described in Gawande’s best-seller “The Checklist Manifesto”, to innovate our frontline systems of health care and reduce suffering at critical moments in people’s lives – including childbirth, surgery and serious illness.  Gawande’s Safe Surgery Checklist, which was developed in 2008, is already being used in 100mm out of 300mm global surgeries annually, and has reduced mortality rates by an average of 35%.

I would like to ask for your support to help me raise money for Ariadne Labs. I will be running as part of the Brigham Marathon team, with over 100 members, and have a goal of raising $2,500.

Thank you in advance for all of the support. I appreciate contributions at any level, and your help goes a long way.
